Painting the interior and the exterior of dollhouse has been completed. I decided to go with the stone spray paint for the roof. It worked really well to cover all of the imperfections. I opted for some reject gray I had on hand from when I was planning the nursery for the outside and some reject dark gray I had from when I painted the exterior of my own house. And then there's the pink door.
Don't mind the windows - the painter's tape was still on the inside of the house. It looks pretty good, huh? I still have to paint on a doorknob and figure out how to make some window boxes. I think I'll just do bottom ones. I picked up some flowers that will work in them.
I let the girls help with the exterior light gray. It was a little chaotic, but I survived and did not have to fix very much.
On to the inside. Here, we have my little helper sanding against the grain. Oh well. I debated for a long time about whether or not to paint the floor. The brown was just so dark and the grain was rather large scale. I don't know if it was the right decision, but I painted it.
That was a bit of a hassle, as well. First I spraypainted it with a satin white, but that got all drippity. Then when I went to go buy a second canister and decided the white was too white, so I got a metallic cream and that provided absolute crap coverage. Then I panicked and went rummaging through my old paint and found a flat white and slathered it all over the interior. And that's what you see here.
It's so white still and the paint is really not what I had envisioned, so I think I'm going to have to wallpaper more than just the back wall of each room. These are the colors that I've been considering:
They are all mostly from a scrapbook paper stack called Citrus that I had originally intended to use for scrapbooking my wedding. That was seven years ago and I have not scrapbooked any of it yet. Blah.
